in most cases you don't need a antivirus on linux,..
you need to specify where the bookmarks are stored? in firefox browser? the files containing bookmarks should be in home directory, with "dot" before the folder name(hidden folder)

Hello. If you feel you must have use the package manager I think ClamAV is in Ubuntu\*. As for (?)Firefox IMHO it's always been easier to unpack it from Mozilla and run but that's debatable, follow these links: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ml#post5063346(1) (3rd one for flash plus if 64-bit)

Could your mouse clicker be going bad or does it work everywhere else?

Try downloading a new Firefox or 64-bit then in your download folder right-click on it and unarchive the folder, put it in home then double-click on the file\app at /home/(user)/firefox/firefox to see if the bug(?) persists? If not you can make short cuts to run it there or try reinstalling it from the package manager... you should also try running updates.
